Richard Benton comes on the podcast and shares his passion of learning languages to create positive change in his community and in the world.
I'm really happy to have connected with Richard in New York where I also had the opportunity to watch his talk on community language learning. It's a topic that isn't widely discussed but I truly believe in the value of the message.
Richard is an incredibly interesting and knowledgeable person who I could listen to for hours. In fact, the conversation was so interesting I had to split the interview into two parts. You're getting the first part here and the second part next week.
Ask me anything!
I often get asked various questions, so I thought it would be good to start sharing some of the answers with the rest of the world. If you have a question about anything (really!) then fire away. Do notice that I'm not a bonafied expert language learner or polyglot. I'm just trying to do my best as the terrible student I am.
I'd be happy to answer any questions on language learning based on the experience I have from interviewing tons of people, who are way more talented than I am. You can ask your question using this link: Ask Kris a question
